Proposition 3-17

Tomorrow is February 17th, marking a month before the holiday that Irish and non-Irish alike celebrate, arguably moreso in the US than in its home country, known as St. Patrick's Day. Even though people across this country celebrate the holiday, or atleast take it as an excuse to drink, the day is not recognized as a holiday in the U.S.

Last year, Guinness set out to change this and got over 350,000 signatures last year in an attempt to get serious notice. Unfortunately, those signatures did not make a difference to the Bush administration. Well change is the key word with Obama now in office, and Guinness is trying to get 1 million signatures this year. With a month left, they are already over a 1/3rd of the way there, with over 368,000 signatures. So spread the word and sign the petition! You can sign here:
